The Knowledge Pool — Maelstrom Wanderer Part 1

Welcome back to The Knowledge Pool! During the last two installments I presented one of my longest tenured decks, Mayael the Anima. You can find my first article here, and part two here. I wanted to start this series with a deck I know inside and out so that I could best introduce the thought […]

Combo Corner — Cascade

Guess who’s back! Patrick Sippola is back and better than ever, and I’m here to crack some mad, homebrewed combos on you with a smile on my face and the stack as confusing as possible. At least that is going to happen this time around, where it isn’t a particular card I’m going to build […]

Low Market — Revenge of the Pauper Commander Double Feature

Composite Golem art by Mark Tedin Double or Nothing Many moons ago, we here at Low Market made a brief double-foray into Pauper Commander, a Commander subformat where any Uncommon creature can be at the helm of deck composed entirely of Commons. My love for this obscure little format has not diminished, so we’re bringing […]

Commander Showdown — Inalla vs Azami

Hocus Pocus Now that Halloween has passed, we can take off our wizard costumes… and pick up our Wizard decks! Tribal decks are all the rage this year, and one of the big decks from Commander 2017 is Arcane Wizardry, featuring Inalla, Archmage Ritualist. Boasting the bizarre ability to temporarily copy your creatures, Inalla has […]

Commander Showdown — Tishana vs Zegana

Prime Speaker of Thunder Ixalan is just around the river bend, which means we must turn our attention from the tribes of Commander 2017 to the tribes of this dangerous new plane. We have a ton of new and exciting legendary creatures headed our way, but there’s one in particular that stands out. Commander Showdown […]

Low Market — Mairsil’s Charge Counter Combo

Mairsil, the Pretender art by Izzy. Madness Flashbacks In Magic lore, the Dominarian wizard Mairsil drove mad a powerful mage named Ith. This nicely aligns with my experiences of Mairsil, because this card drove me insane upon its release. I knew within seconds that I had to, had to, theorycraft this budget deck for my […]

Low Market — Borborygmos’ Splendid Combo

Borborygmos Enraged art by Aleksi Briclot Anger Management It’s an important life skill, I believe, to find constructive outlets for your anger. I, for example, might channel it into video games. Some people might exercise. Some people might find a private place to emit a primal screech. Borborygmos Enraged does none of these things, preferring […]

Commander Showdown — The Locust God vs Niv-Mizzet

A Plague of Locusts Upon Your House Hour of Devastation is almost upon us, and there are some awesome preview cards on the horizon. We’ve seen Theros gods and Amonkhet gods before, but we’ve never seen plague gods. Scorpions and scarabs are terrifying, but the one that frightens me most is The Locust God. This giant insect will […]
